( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I dont know whether i understood the question correctly. As you mentioned that each line in the file is single XML statement, I used XML::Twig to check the element and attributes by processing the file line by line.

This below code will print the line number at which you find the discrepancy. You can tweak this code to accommodate the changes you need.

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use XML::Twig; my %elem_att = qw(cat meow dog bark); my $reg = join '|', keys %elem_att; while (<DATA>) { next unless (m/<(?:$reg)/); my $line = $_; my $line_num = $.; my $elt = parse XML::Twig::Elt($line); my $element = $elt->name; my $att = $elem_att{$element}; unless ($elt->att_exists($att)) { print "Attribute $att is not found at line number $line_num\n" +; next; } } __DATA__ <root> <a/> <b/> <cat tail='text' meow='text'/> <cat tail='text'/> <cat tail='text'/> <dog tail='text' bark='text'/> <dog tail='text'/> </root>

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
